We are very happy that we settled on La Bella Italia to spend our Valentine's Day dinner. The candlelight ambiance made this feel like an intimate dining experience even when it became more crowded later in the evening. We shared the mushroom bruschetta and lasagne Bolognese along with a glass of wine each which came to under $20. While the... More

Went in here with a craving for real Italian food and it did not disappoint! The pizzas are delicious and portion sizes of the pasta dishes are enormous! Well worth the price. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we went back two days later, although this time the service was somewhat lacking.

I was so excited about their menu as they had some unique pizzas on the list. Ordered pizza with spinach, mozzarella with fried egg on top and was hopefully waiting for about 45 minutes. What they served as lemongrass tea was a couple of leaves with hot water and was not strong enough at all. However, about pizza, I was... More

Burning candles, music playing at a low volume and the smell of food cooking in the kitchen made the start of my visit a pleasant experiance. I ate breaded and fried chicken with mozarella and tomato sauce. The sauce had a really deep good flavour which brought me back to Italy. The sallad had a nice tasting vinegrette and the... More
